This is a combination beach and park, with both sand and grassy areas, along with some picnic tables. It's a nice area to just relax. It can get a crowded on weekends, but still, a great place to visit.

This is a good little protected cove area were the kids can play in the sand and water. They have a little snack bar but parking can be tough especially around the holidays.

We saw surfers in November, boats, birds, cyclists going past on the trail, and it seemed like a really fun spot to spend part of a day! We were on our way to the monarch sanctuary, so only spent 15 minutes here. What a clean town! Beautiful vistas!

Very scenic spot to get a great glimpse of the rugged Northern California coastline. You may get to see some seals swimming through the waves that crash and splash upon the rocks. Nice romantic spot for some kisses with your sweety.

This was a nice little patch of white sand beach for kids to play. The sand is perfect for building sand castles. Parking was easy (mid-week). Highly recommend.

Our hotel, the Lovers Point Inn, is right across the street from this park. There is a great view and very nice areas in which to walk. The park has paved walkways, which is always nice to accommodate people of all ages.

It is a well maintained park with benches, tables and grassy areas. Great view of the ocean. The only negative I can think of is there are no bathrooms available.
